COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a dark beer as our first and flagship brand, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It’s prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.

This is some mighty fine porter. The Deschutes Brewery does a good job of making some of the finest beer in the US.

A very good beer. Nice chocolate toasty aroma. Real smooth and drinkable. Many think of dark beers as heavy and chewy...this is not. One of my favorite dark beers.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2005 Dark brown colour, not so much carbo or head. Cheap chocolate aroma with a bit of nuttiness. Bog standard porter flavours with toastiness, hints of coffee and vague nuts. Thin body, spritzy off-dry finish. I’ve never understood the popularity of this beer and a decade after I first tried it Black Butte still fails to impress me.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2003 Draught @ Papago As it was “Deschutes Promo Night” at “Papago Brewery”, and even thought I had some foot surgery scheduled the next day, there was just “No Way” I would pass up this “Great” opportunity to sample some of the best beers available in these here United States, and trust me I was not disappointed by the fine turn out and the great beer rep from Deschutes, just another class act from a “Classic American Brewery”. Not your prototypical porter color, a beauteous blackberry color as it set in my “Papago Monk Club Goblet”, the head Bunyanesque in size, creamy in texture, the color a light tan and as the head ever so slowly dissipated, a thick and glutinous sheet of lace formed to meld with the goblet. Lots of malt and a fine hint of toasted grain in the crisp and fresh nose, a treat for this old schnozzle, start sweet, the top middling in its feel. Finish is benignly carbonated, the hops pleasing in their spiciness, dry aftertaste, and a real nice porter that is not overpowering, just plain “Good Drinking”!

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2000
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Nice and dark, with deep-red highlights. Rich mouthfeel. Roasty, toasty, chewy, and aromatic. Rather tasty porter. Curious fruitiness in the background. Wholesome and easy to drink.
